    Default Wiring For Station Bell

    Our agency uses the Federal Signal Model 300SCW–1 SelecTone® Command Unit to initiate station tones. Was wondering if there is a relatively easy way of wiring up a real bell to be sounded upon station tone activation. I realize this would involve some sort of relay and a separate power source for the bell gong.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Sounds easy. Wire up the relay to the contact closures. Power up the bell and voila. We'll see if it works out that way! Thanks. Wasn't sure if the relay contack closures would work. I undertand how relays work. Just not sure about which contacts would give me the signal I need.
